No, but that that there already are
code-snippets lying there to be
utilised. I meant that you needed a few
original lines of codes and editing to
sew everything together seamlessly.

:D LOL Please don't dissect my email
and quote me out of context, I beg you!

Please interpret my post in its
entirety, from the bird's eye view.

Then, please try to see the obvious
truth -- had I perceived myself to be
able to write those codes myself why
would I appeal to you?!

And I am, in the end, an end-user who
has now just begun to visualise the real
outcome of this OSS collaboration --
that we are one super-organism at at
abstract level!

I am reading the codes, if you have
read my earlier posts, and had
requested for directions to look at a
particular outcome in one of my posts.

When I am ready you won't need to throw
me a challenge. Open source is not
about challenges. It is about
collaboration. We try to do what we do
best, and the rest will be taken care
by someone else, and things would
proceed beyond our perception. Let us
understand our role here as being that
of complementarity. Otherwise, the OSS
project would fail.

My goal is _not_ to rub you the wrong
way, _not_ to rub your egos. My goal is
to prod you to supersede yourselves as

My best wishes,
Rajib Bandopadhyay
